No matter what type of business you run, you can still take part in the Plastic Free Sutherland Shire program and demonstrate your commitment to a healthy and beautiful local environment.

As each business has its unique opportunities and challenges, joining Plastic Free Sutherland Shire requires you to demonstrate how you commit to going plastic-free.

Here are some suggestions, but no doubt you’ll have more.

To share your story about how your business has gone plastic-free with us, contact us here.

Don’t use plastic packaging for your goods. Use paper bags or even boxes. You could sell reusable cloth bags or encourage customers to bring their own bags. Perhaps you could offer an incentive for them to do so.

1.

Provide reusable crockery and cutlery for staff.

2.

Encourage staff to take a reusable mug with them when they go out for a take-away coffee.

3.

Use paper and cardboard stationery instead of plastic.
